    You might be the oldest guy at your local young republicans chapter, but when you’re getting pissed at the WHO for interfering with your investments, it feels like it might be time for Druff to loan you a red tie

    Folks! Folks! Folks! This coronavirus could end up solving a huge problem facing the US, mainly the ballooning expected federal expenditures for Social Security and Medicare for the elderly. Just think of it this way: Those folks are way more likely to already have have compromised immune systems, so if the coronavirus spreads rapidly enough in the US to infect all of those folks, the short-term bump in healthcare costs to treat those who get infected would likely he saved 10 times over in futures savings on those federal “entitlements” programs.

    Nobody's saying it's a catastrophe /right now/. It's about, what will become of this virus given the trajectory. Also, things like texting while driving actually are very dangerous that should concern people and should be talked about more. Hippos are one of the most dangerous animals on the planet, and should also concern people who live near them.

    I know this is a big massive shock to the outside world but...

    You Can Now Go to Jail in China for Criticizing Beijing’s Coronavirus Response



    Chinese authorities are cracking down on negative media coverage and social media commentary about the coronavirus outbreak, threatening anyone who breaches their rules with up to seven years in jail.

    On Wednesday the government authorities issued an order for an article that looked at the possible negative impact of the outbreak on China’s economy to be scrubbed from the internet.

    The article, published by state-owned weekly news magazine Sanlian Life Week, considered what might happen to the Chinese economy if the World Health Organization declares the Wuhan coronavirus to be a “global health emergency.”

    The alert, leaked to California-based monitoring group China Digital Times, is just the latest effort by Beijing to censor criticism of the outbreak.

    Beijing is eager to avoid a repeat of what happened during its 2003 SARS crisis, when it was heavily criticized for its delayed reaction to the outbreak and its effort to hide its true scale.

    Globally, its efforts seem to be working.

    On Wednesday, the World Health Organization was effusive in its praise of the Chinese government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, but inside the country, the government is working overtime to make sure any shortcomings in its response don’t come to light.

    These efforts include arresting dozens of social media users who spread “false information without verification.” One of those arrested turned out to be a doctor on the front line of the fights to contain the virus who shared information about the unknown illness with a private WeChat group. The doctor, who was forced to sign a document saying he would abide by the law, has since been infected with the coronavirus and remains in a critical condition.

    This week, police in the port city of Tianjin detained a man for 10 days for “maliciously publishing aggressive, insulting speech against medical personnel” after he criticized the response to the outbreak in a WeChat group he shared with his friends.


    China’s huge online censorship system, known as the Great Firewall, is also censoring any information the government deems to be “rumor.”

    Examples of this include posts by families of infected people seeking help, by people living in quarantined cities documenting their daily life, and by those criticizing the government’s handling of the crisis.

    In a bid to make sure people don’t even try and spread such “rumors” on Chinese social media, the government announced this week that anyone who tries to "disrupt social order" by posting on social media information from sources other than state-run media, will face between three and seven years in jail.

    Critics of the government’s efforts to stifle online discussion and sharing of information say these actions threaten basic human rights.

    “The coronavirus outbreak requires a swift and comprehensive response that respects human rights,” Yaqiu Wang, a China researcher with Human Rights Watch, said in a statement. “Authorities should recognize that censorship only fuels public distrust, and instead encourage civil society engagement and media reporting on this public health crisis.”

    In a bid to counteract any negative commentary about the government’s response to the outbreak, state-backed media outlets have been producing gushing reports about Beijing’s efforts to address the crisis.

    These include numerous videos of the new hospital being built in Wuhan, all set to stirring background music.


    These efforts also include sharing fake images of the new hospital.

    The images, which actually show a modular apartment building more than 600 miles away in Qingdao, were posted by the verified Twitter accounts of the Global Times and the People’s Daily, both state-run publications, in an apparent bid to show the hospital construction as more advanced than it really was.

    The image was also shared by the Twitter account of Lijian Zhao, the deputy director-general of the information department in the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    Cover: Police officers wear masks in Beijing, China on Jan. 29,2020. The spread of pneumonia caused by new type of coronavirus confirmed in the Hubei Province city is still spreading.

    Confirmed cases - 9,776 (9,658 of the cases are from mainland China)

    Coronavirus arrives in Russia. Amazing how long it took considering the length of the border.

    I am ever the optimist, so here:

    Zhong Nanshan, the top infectious disease scientist who fought SARS, says the wave of 2019-nCoVinfections of will slow in early February:

    on the 29th of January:

    “I estimate that it will reach its peak in around the next week or 10 days, after that there will be no more major increases,” said Zhong Nanshan, the respiratory disease scientist who played the pivotal role in China’s fight against the severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) coronavirus epidemic in 2002-03.

    If this is true, the world will have dodged a big bullet. But on a more local scale, Mumbles will be able to say he's the first one who predicted (using his Google sleuthing skills, certainly) that this might not be so bad and would need to be given kudos. I am not sure PFA will survive such a realization.

    Also, I am not seeing any sign here of parabolic phenomena:

    In any event, what the Chinese SARS scientist dude said was he thinks in "a week to 10 days" we could see a downturn in the growth rate of total cases identified and just using my eyes and that graph, that has already happened a few days ago --- the growth rate is steady, not really growing. Hopefully the next trend is down, but I'm not that optimistic.

    Maybe the graph is like that because hospitals can't cope with and identify new patients, maybe it's government suppression of true cases, or maybe it's because people have literally barricaded themselves in tiny rooms now that this is their new living reality (thus cannot be identified likely but more importantly cannot really spread this hell either).

    We shall see, but if I were a betting man, Mumble's futures just went up...
